March was all about our lovely community. We’ve had Icinga Camp Berlin and San Francisco, and also joined FLOSSUK. You’ll also recognize that our Puppet module for Icinga 2 was officially approved by Puppet. Blerim released icingabeat and blogged about it at the Elastic blog. And many more things happened …

We’ve also thought about 1st of April, but hey – we have so many great things to share and work on, we’ll skip it for 2017 ;-)

Products

 

Icingabeat

Blerim released Icingabeat v1.0.0 making integration with the Elastic Stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana) a breeze. He also wrote a blog post at Elastic:

We’ve also managed to integrate it into the Vagrant boxes, more on that soon. Meanwhile check out the technical background on how to manage Elastic Stack with Puppet :)

 

Puppet Module

Our Icinga 2 Puppet module has been officially approved by Puppet. HOORAY!

Lennart started a blog series (in German) about the Icinga 2 Puppet module.

 

Icinga 2

It is really great to see the capabilities of the Icinga 2 DSL in production environments. Eduard Güldner provided many useful hints and details in his talk during Icinga Camp Berlin.

There are also various examples for generating demo configuration used inside the Vagrant boxes. They’ll help explaining what closures or anonymous lambda functions are used for.

We’ve also released a small bugfix release v2.6.3 in March.

Time flies – 3 years ago we’ve designed and implemented the magic apply rules inside the Icinga 2 DSL. 3 years ago … Icinga turns 8 in May!

 

Icinga Web 2 and Icinga Director

Marianne wrote an article about the Icinga Director for iX magazine. Get it while it is hot!

 

There’s a new Icinga Web 2 module for importing iTop data into the Icinga Director.

If you’re considering to write your Icinga Web 2 module, chime in on the forums. There are community members helping out. Or you just watch Eric’s Icinga Camp talk again :)

 

Integrations

qubit wrote a howto on installing InfluxDB and Grafana with Icinga 2 over at monitoring-portal.org. In case you are looking into Redis monitoring, keep an eye on Webdis.

Volker did a deep dive into deploying Icinga 2 with Ansible.

Ever wanted to automate the installation of NSClient++? Fellow community members tried such in this forum thread.

msiexec /q /i nscp.msi ADDLOCAL=ALL REMOVE=Documentation,WEBPlugins,DotNetPluginSupport,LuaScript,PythonScript,SampleConfig,Shortcuts,NRPEPlugins,NSCAPlugin,NSCPlugins"

 

Integration of PNP graphs in Icinga Web 2

… even Telegram notifications using the Icinga Director :)

Take control over the Icinga 2 API with this Nodejs library.

When it comes to domain expiration monitoring, take a look at this guide.

Or DNSSEC

 

Check your NextCloud platform being up-to-date …

Enhancements for Manubulon SNMP plugins.

OK – Icinga monitoring is online at Puzzle ITC.

Monitoring the essential :)

That’s it for March, can’t wait for April :-)
